Audi A7 review - can it match rivals from BMW and Mercedes?
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/256879/audi_a7_30_tdi.html
Is there such a thing as too much choice? Audi clearly doesn't think so. The German firm's range already consists of 20 different body styles, and now there's a new one to choose from -- the new, Mercedes CLS-rivalling A7 Sportback.

Mercedes CLS review - Auto Express
It's the original four-door coupé -- and now, the CLS is back for its
difficult second instalment! Since 2004, a total of 170,00 customers have
been seduced by the big Mercedes' blend of luxury and striking good looks.
And it's inspired the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7. So can the
all-new CLS pick up where its predecessor left off?

The new Lamborghini Huracan LP6104 has a big task on its hands.
Not only must it beat the Ferrari 458 and the McLaren 650S, it needs to
outperform the Gallardo - the car it replaced - in the showroom, as the
Gallardo was the manufacturer's best-selling model ever, with 14,000 sold
over a 10-year career.
Happily, the Lamborghini Huracan gets off to the best possible start.
Perhaps the design is a little conservative by Lamborghini's standards, but
in the flesh, the aggressive proportions, aggressive front end and floating
C-Pillar push all the right buttons.
Like in the Lamborghini Aventador, the interior of the Huracan pays homage
to fighter jets, with a flip-up ignition switch, angles everywhere and a
new cockpit-like 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the wheel that
can be configured in a variety of ways.
The Lamborghini Huracan also gets a whole range of brand-new technologies.
For starters, there's this all new chassis which is made from a combination
of aluminium and carbon fibre. This makes the Huracan not only 10 per cent
lighter than the Gallardo, but also 50 per cent stiffer.
There are also new three-stage adaptive dampers, as well as a variable
ratio electro-mechanical steering system that varies the ratio on how quick
A new electronically controlled four-wheel drive system can send up to 70
per cent of the power to the Huracan's rear-wheels in normal driving, and
up to 100 per cent when you really need it.
Most importantly on the new Lamborghini Huracan, though, is a new,
seven-speed twin-clutch box that shouldn't feel like you're getting kicked
in the head every time you change gear.
Rather than downsizing or turbocharging,
Lamborghini has stuck to its guns by using a developed version of the
Gallardo's naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10.
The Lamborghini Huracan gets stop-start and a few other tweaks to make it a
little bit cleaner, but most importantly, it's now got 602bhp and 560Nm of
torque. It'll do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and it has a top-speed of 202mph.
The Lamborghini Huracan's acceleration is pretty vivid. Perhaps it doesn't
quite have the free-revving nature of a Ferrari 458 or the turbocharged hit of a McLaren 650S, but it's
definitely lost none of the aural drama that the Gallardo had.
The biggest change here with the Lamborghini Huracan, though, is its
breadth of abilities.
It has something called the 'Anima' switch, meaning it has three driving
modes. In 'Strada' mode, it softens the suspension and dials back the
ferocity of the steering, the gearbox and the throttle.
'Sport' mode is somewhat of an interim mode and it's pretty good for
fast-driving on road. But since we're testing the Lamborghini Huracan at
the amazing Ascari circuit in Spain, it would be a shame if we didn't go
for the full-fat 'Corsa' mode.
Fling it into a corner and the steering is quite light, but it's absolutely
pin-sharp. In terms of feel, it's a bit like a Ferrari 458 and you can feel
the variable ratio really helping you out, meaning there's no full-opposite
The carbon ceramic brakes on the Lamborghini Huracan are standard-fit now,
and they're absolutely brutal in the way they stop the car.
With the four-wheel drive system, there's also tonnes of grip. However, if
you provoke the Huracan a bit, you can get it to act a bit like a
rear-wheel drive car.
Perhaps it's not as lairy as the Gallardo used to be - that used to like to
gets its tail out at the slightest provocation - but you can still have
some fun with this thing and feel it moving underneath you. The tech used
in the Huracan can also make a pretty average driver look pretty
The question is though, is do you actually want a Lamborghini that flatters
you and covers up all your driving mistakes? Some will say that a
Lamborghini should scare the life out of you and your passenger. Then it
should spit you into a hedge when you're not at the top of your game.
But, we'd disagree because the new Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern
electronics and old-school theatrics.
If you want something that drives like a pig and breaks-down every five
minutes, you can always take your £186,000 and spend it on something from
Lamborghini's back catalogue.
2014 Audi RS7: Top Speed Bahnstorming in Germany! - Ignition Ep. 80
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the new Audi RS7 through
over 500 miles of German roads, including top-speed blasts on the
unrestricted Autobahn. With 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of
torque from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter
V-8, the RS7 eclipses even the R8's 5.2-liter V-10 in power delivery. We
find out just how monstrous the resulting acceleration is -- as well as the
top speed -- though the green countryside of southern Germany.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Like the idea of a large executive car, but can't quite see yourself behind
the wheel of a large, heavy saloon? Then the Audi A7 is for you, it's
Audi's answer to cars like the Mercedes CLS and BMW 5-Series GT, both of
which are subtly different to the A7 in terms of concept. Practicality is
good, with a 535 litre boot, and the car is comfortable and relaxing to
2013 Audi A7 3.0 BiTurbo TDI (313hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
The full Autobahn and country road drive with the 2013 Audi A7 3.0 Bi-turbo TDI ("BiTDI") with 313hp and 650Nm of
torque.This time in a A7 Sportback which had the optional S-Line package
and therefore runs on 265 / 35 / R20 wheels. Acceleration is really
impressive while the Exhaust plays a
lovley sound. Compared to the 245hp Diesel (7-speed S-Tronic) in A6 and A7
this car offers the 8-speed automatic which makes the ride more comfortable
than the S-Tronic variants. The built in S-Line Suspension was stable but a
bit to uncomfortable, therefore I would suggest taking the Sport Suspension
or adaptive air Suspension. As always, make sure to LIKE / COMMENT /
